Reversal Strategies: Narcan
Narcan (Noxalone) is a legal medication that temporarily reverses an opiod overdose. It is available as an injection or a nasal spray and is routinely used by emergency medical services. Narcan will not cause harm — even if the person is not actually overdosing.
Narcan is available to anyone — without a prescription — who completes a short orientation on how to administer a dose.
To access Narcan samples and training in Springfield, contact S.C.O.O.P. or our partner, Tapestry Health.
